August 17th

Tuesday saw me unexpectedly heading to a Simpsons trivia night at The Ossington. And while most people were drinking $3.50 bottles of Duff (aka. PBR and Bud with stickers over them – something the LCBO/AGCO surely wouldn’t approve of), I couldn’t harm my taste buds in such a vicious manner. Luckily there were a couple of decent taps, including the Weihenstephaner Hefe-Weissbier, which is probably my favourite everyday beer of the past couple of months. Lots really vibrant flavours of banana and spices. A nice match for a crowded bar where Simpsons quotes are being thrown out faster than you could say “Thrillho.”

  1. I’m one of the organizers of said Simpsons trivia night! Glad you enjoyed it. One of the teams was actually called Thrillho, which was amazing. We figured Duff probably tastes most like 50 or PBR. Anyone who wants to come to the next trivia night can keep in touch by following us on Twitter: @woohootrivia
    Thanks for mentioning us in your post!

  2. Just wanted to reiterate that the Duff was PBR and Labatt 50, not Bud. Thrillho was also an answer, one of the few we actually got!

  3. “Welcome Thrillho”

    amazing.
